Traditional Braces vs. Crystal Clear Aligners

  • The ability to remove Crystal Clear Aligners® while eating, drinking and performing oral hygiene, such as flossing and brushing, provides patients with the freedom to eat and care for their teeth without the restrictions of traditional braces.
  • Unlike Crystal Clear Aligners®, traditional braces can require frequent orthodontic visits and treatment delays caused by loose or broken appliances. These delays can be avoided with our custom designed aligners, which provide each patient with a superior fit.
  • Crystal Clear Aligners® provide our patients with a comfortable fit without the wires and / or hooks of traditional braces.
  • Compliance is the cornerstone of any successful orthodontic treatment. Crystal Clear Aligners® exert a continuous force for approximately 22 hours per day, which will expedite their overall treatment time. Traditional braces have to be regularly adjusted, and the force applied between adjustments may be inconsistent and cause delays in the length of treatment.
  • Traditional braces can cause white lesions on the teeth surfaces that may require costly cosmetic dental treatment. These lesions are not an issue with Crystal Clear Aligners®, which saves the patient money and time.
  • Removing traditional braces after treatment can result in cracks/scars on the teeth’s enamel. However, Crystal Clear Aligners® are not bonded to the teeth, which protects the patient’s enamel throughout the treatment period.
  • The additional cosmetic work that might be needed with traditional braces can make Crystal Clear Aligners® more cost-effective.
